Too shy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIs it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why?

Is not easy for me, I don’t know why. Maybe because I don’t want to bother others with my problems. I’m not a rock. I don’t like being a burden for my loved ones and I’m too shy with strangers. Even asking for help in a store when I need it is difficult. Or ask for directions when lost… I don’t understand why I chose Journalism being so shy, because I had to spend my whole professional life talking to strangers to ask them difficult questions. If I have to ask for others (my readers, my family, my friends) I usually have no problem. But when it’s for me I get confused insecure and consider myself with no right to steal anyone’s time.
